Behaviour 2019 Program

Please find the Behaviour 2019 program below.

NEW THIS YEAR: All presenters must accept/comfirm their presentation assignment through the email notification sent by ABS, otherwise the presentation slot will be assigend to someone else.

ABS policy is that acceptance of submissions for talks are on a first-come, first-served basis. Unfortunately this year we received more talk requests than could be schedulde, so please let us know if you can no longer present so that another person "in line" can be assigned.

Additonally, changes to the program are very limited. If you have any questions please contact: info@animalbehaviorsociety.org
